Summary: The whole world now knows about vampires, and most of it has been compelled by Klaus, via the "coming out" broadcast. With the Salvatores and the Winchesters unable to see eye to eye on anything, Lois learning the way of the vampire hunter, and someone from the past returning to 'help', things are about to become crazy. And, of course, E!News is happily covering it all.

"I can't believe we're not in there demanding the truth, or at least being some sort of a backup." Lois hugged herself and kicked at a poster that'd fallen free from somewhere.

Sam sighed as he shucked his hands in his jacket and pulled his cap down over his face more. "If we'd stayed and argued we would've only caused a scene, and Klaus might've decided not to answer their questions. We did the best thing we could've."

"What use are my new vampire-hunting skills if I'm not allowed to use them?" Lois sighed. "Maybe finding out whatever he's finding out will help Dean."

"Maybe." Sam sent Lois a sideways glance when her phone began to ring a certain ringtone, the chorus of "FU" by Miley Cyrus. "Dad's still calling you, huh?"

Lois nodded and didn't make a move to answer the phone. "I know this has to be awkward for you, so don't think I don't appreciate how good a friend you've been."

"His mess, no one told him to put his tongue in her mouth." Sam shrugged as they continued to walk. "I have to say it though, that ringtone is mean. You know he doesn't like Miley Cyrus."

Lois snickered as she nodded as the ringing stopped. "Tough."

Sam smirked as he bumped his shoulder into hers playfully and would've said something else when another personalized ringtone started. This time it was the chorus of "Get Sleazy" by Ke$ha, which betrayed the fact that the girl hadn't been as unfazed by her meeting with the man behind the ringtone as she'd like them all to believe. If anything, he'd said something that had obviously pissed the brunette off-just not enough for her to block his calls, not that she answered any though. "So, you ever going to tell me how Kol Mikaelson got your cellular number?"

Lois made a face as she let the call ring out. "Sure, once I figure that out myself."

"Ever going to tell us what Kol said to piss you off?" Sam raised an eyebrow.

Lois pursed her lips. "It's… stupid."

Sam smirked. "We guys tend to do stuff like that. Listening to you helps me learn what not to do."

Lois sent him a sideways glance. "Well, if you put it that way, if it'll be educational and help Team Schlean…" she took in a deep breath. "He said-."

Her phone rang once more, this time the ringtone was the chorus of "New Divide" by Linkin Park. "No way." She reached rapidly for her phone and flipped it open, bringing it to her ear. "Hello?"

Sam frowned, gaze on Lois' pale face.

"I can't believe it's you-that you're calling." Lois' voice was soft, barely audible, her face paler and paler as she pulled a dark strand of hair out of it. "How are you? Is everything okay with-? No I don't-I just assumed-I'm sorry, you're right, I should know better."

Just who was on the other side of the phone? Sam had never seen Lois react like this before.

Lois stopped walking and looked nauseas. "I understand. Yes. I can definitely arrange that." She licked her lips, and the look she sent Sam was almost panicked before she gave a shaky smile and turned her back on him as she walked a couple of steps away. "Yes sir. She is." She took in a deep breath. "I'll let her know." She then put her phone back away, her hands shaky.

Sam frowned. "Who was that?"

Lois licked her lips as she let out a little breath. "The General."

Sam didn't get it at first, and then he did. "Your dad?"

Lois nodded, obviously still in shock. "He said he'll be in Hollywood in the next couple of days and wants to have dinner with Chloe and I." Lois took in a deep breath. "He's never "just in town" and just wants to have dinner with us. Something has to be up but I have no idea what."

"If we were such good friends, as you say, why would you Compel me to forget that?" Stefan leaned forwards after hearing Klaus' recounting of their "Epic Bromance", as Rebekah liked to refer to it scornfully.

Dean was silent on Chloe's other side, still visibly trying to digest everything he'd learnt today.

Before Klaus sat the three most interesting people for him right now, and he was enjoying this day immensely so far, so that was probably why he answered truthfully. "Because, at the time, we were being hunted, and it was in your best interest if you forgot all about us. It was in our best interest that you forgot about us as well." Some of his good mood evaporated as he remembered that time in his life all too well in which he'd had to run for centuries while being hunted like some sort of animal. "You were my best friend, Stefan, and I was sad to part with your friendship. We both understood each other, especially with being saddled with siblings we couldn't trust."

Stefan narrowed his eyes. "I worked out my issues with my brother."

Klaus' gaze went to Chloe before they returned to Stefan. "I've heard. You used to complain endlessly about Katerina and her plans for you and Damon, and yet you seem to have settled into that lifestyle quite happily now with our dear Chloe." His gaze returned to Chloe. "Then again, she is special."

Chloe narrowed her eyes at him.

He smirked.

"Keep looking at her like that-." Stefan started.

Klaus chuckled as he turned his gaze towards the younger vampire. "I've never known you to be so possessive, Stefan. We used to share conquests in the past. And it's not like you're not sharing her already."

Stefan leaned forwards, his eyes darkening.

Chloe reached out and grabbed his arm. "He's baiting you, Stef."

Stefan, the Ripper, took in a deep breath before he sat back down and his eyes went back to normal.

Klaus looked at Chloe once more. She had one hand on Dean's thigh, offering him comfort, and the other on Stefan's arm, calming him.

Chloe's eyes found Klaus' and pinned him with their intensity. "So I'm assuming that this person hunting you is dead, and that's why you can now come out to the world so boldly."

He smirked.

Not to insult Stefan, but she was definitely the brains here.

"Aren't you embarrassed with yourself?" Rebekah didn't even look up from where she filed her nails. "She's human. Stop calling her like some lovesick schoolboy."

Kol merely flipped his sister the bird as he plopped earphones in his ear and put the music on his phone to play as he took to texting.

"Leave him to his own devices, sister." Finn sat in the corner, a book in his hand. "Kol hasn't been this lively in a while. Let him enjoy himself."

"I'm surprised that you're encouraging him, Finn. She's human." Elijah stepped forwards. "I thought you believed that we should leave the humans alone."

"We should." Finn gazed up from his book. "But I also believe that Miss Lane can take care of herself and handle the situation better than most humans."

"What's there to handle, really?" Rebekah raised an eyebrow. "It's only Kol."

Kol flipped her the bird once more.

She smirked in amusement.

Elijah wasn't in as good a mood as them. "You're forgetting that she's Chloe Sullivan's cousin."

Kol finally yanked out his earphones and eyed Elijah. "Why don't you just admit that Chloe Compelled you and that that's got you shitting bricks?"

"Language." And yet Finn was frowning. "In Elijah's defense, that is a very disturbing thing to say the least."

Rebekah put down her nail filer with a sigh. "So what do we know about this Chloe Sullivan other than the fact that when she doesn't have Vervain in her system she can only Compel people using Vervain, but when she has Vervain in her own system she seems unable to Compel people but capable of Compelling vampires? An Original even?" She raised an eyebrow. "And on that note, is there anyone else wondering why Niklaus doesn't want her dead?"

"She doesn't have the ability to Compel him." Elijah took a long sip of his drink. "She spoke to him and it had no effect, so I assume that is why she's still alive."

Finn leaned forwards in his seat. "Again, his being the Original Hybrid comes with fringe benefits."

Elijah licked his lips. "We're looking into her past, trying to understand why she came out so… different… The ability to be able to Compel another vampire is something only an Original should be able to do, and yet not only can she do it but she can Compel an Original…" he finished his drink in a quick gulp.

Kol eyed Elijah. "In a 'Cauldron of Secrets', the last episode of Season One of the Supernatural Diaries, she saved Sam Winchester's life in the most interesting of ways: magic."

Finn raised an eyebrow. "Is that so?"

"She was a witch before she was turned?" Rebekah frowned, thinking about their mother, the Original Witch, the reason they were what they were.

"She said she wasn't a witch, but she saved Sam from the black death curse." Kol eyed everyone, knowing they were familiar with the dreaded curse. "She reverted the curse back to the caster." He cleared his throat. "That takes power."

"No mere dabbler could do that." Elijah frowned. "The black death curse is an extremely powerful curse, and to successfully return it to the caster…" He took in a deep breath. "Maybe that explains why she can do the things she can do."

"She couldn't have been a witch, they're nature's servants while vampires are an "abomination" of nature, you can't be both." Rebekah shook her head as she reminded them what they already knew very well. "If a witch is turned into a vampire, their magical powers will vanish. You know that mother's greatest sadness about turning us was that her magic would die with her."

Silence reigned amongst them.

"Well, if not a witch, then what?" Finn wanted to know.

Elijah went to get another drink.

Kol eyed his siblings, smirked, and plopped back in his earphones.

Rebekah sighed, good mood evaporated.

"No." Chloe shook her head, eyes wide in horror. "No!"

Klaus smirked, highly amused that this was what had gotten this sort of reaction out of her. "It's already been decided. If you remember, the contracts had been signed before you went on your sabbatical, and it was always on "hiatus". Now, with everything that has been going on, and my own approval and input, Season Two has been greenlit and you will do it."

The girl stared at him as if he'd just told her to walk naked across a room filled with rapists. "You can't make me."

She was so amusing.

"I'm not making you, this was a commitment you'd made long before meeting me. I only learnt these details while talking to your boss on the phone earlier when I called to discuss with him the possibility of you becoming an exclusive correspondent for all Original news to the press-when you're not filming Season Two or working on Chloe & The Dead People of course." Klaus was seriously enjoying seeing the horror dawning on her face. "He was ecstatic at the thought, and I'm sure you'll be getting a call from him by tonight to discuss the details of all that will be going on in your very busy future."

"Why are you doing this?" Dean wanted to know. "It doesn't make any sense. You've Compelled most of the world… and this is your next move?"

Klaus smirked. "I do my best to not be predictable."

Stefan shook his head. "I think it's more like you have another game playing beneath the surface and we just have no clue what that is."

Klaus chuckled as he clasped his fingers together and leaned his chin on them. "There could be an element of that as well."

Chloe stared at Klaus as if he was the devil and he terrified her. "Season Two?"

He grinned, showing teeth. Oh, she amused him! This was what scared her! THIS! "Season Two."

She went paler than usual.

"Stop enjoying this," Stefan glared at Klaus before he leaned towards her, his hand on her cheek. "It can't be that bad."

"You don't understand, you didn't even watch Season One." Chloe let out a stuttered breath. "There are cameras all the time. And cameramen! It was hard enough keeping things private before! How am I supposed to do it now that I-?" She licked the underside of her teeth.

"We'll figure something out." Dean rubbed her thigh. "It'll be okay Chloe."

Klaus eyed the threesome before him curiously before he cleared his throat loudly. "Right then, now, you had some questions you needed to ask for your article, correct?" He grinned at the nauseated looking blonde. "Let the good times roll!"

Episode Five "Devil's Caves" Arizona

"We need to get out of here." The fear was visible on Chloe's face as the light strapped to Sam's forehead shone down on her. "We have to get out! The walls-they shifted-we're trapped-air! I need air! I-!"

"Chloe, you need to calm down." Sam placed his hands on her shoulders as he stared down at the girl, who was close to tears and shaking like a leaf in the wind. "You've been through so much worse than this. You need to keep your head straight in these sorts of situations, you taught me that."

"THE WALLS MOVED!" Chloe grabbed at the hands he had on her. "THEY MOVED!" She looked around them, her breathing louder and faster. "They'll close in on us. They'll trap us down here forever, they'll-."

"No they won't." Sam's voice was soft and soothing. "We'll use Dean's GPS device and we'll get out of here."

Dean, clearly disturbed, turned towards Lois, his voice low. "I've never seen her react like this. I didn't even know she was claustrophobic."

Lois was pale, haunted. "She has good reason to be."

"I can't die yet," Chloe kept whispering, eyes closed tightly. "Not like this."

"You're not going to die." Something in Sam's voice must've reached her because she opened her eyes. "You're getting out of here, Chloe, we all are. This isn't your tomb."

Chloe let out a stuttered laugh before she nodded and breathed out deeply, clutching to Sam as if to life itself. "I'm sorry, I-I shouldn't have reacted-you're right." She lifted her head and smiled tremulously at him. "We'll use Dean's gizmo and get out of here."

Damon shifted, uncomfortable.

He'd never known this Chloe, had never seen her react like this to a situation. Hell, he hadn't realized she was claustrophobic!

He'd only started watching Supernatural Diaries Season One because he had nothing better to do and he wanted to see Dean get nearly scalped by a wannabe Chucky, but as each episode went by he was finding it both harder to watch, and yet more compelling at the same time.

Bela was right, Sam and Dean had a lead on him because they knew a side of Chloe he hadn't even dreamed existed, and damn it, that stung.
